Since i have a rule about buying products online when i know i can buy them from an electronics shop...
Sooo i was at jaycar, so i bought a LeoStick, basically, it's identical to how the real board works, same pins and everything only it comes with a speaker and an RGB SMD LED fun to play with for all of 5 minutes.
so then.. I tried the keyboard example, it worked. bored
Then i remember to a guy on youtube making an attiny85 act as a virtual usb host a HID. - now he made his attiny85 able to get keyboard input as well as control/send, how come this is not implemented in the custom library? or is there a reason? or is there a hack to make it readable of other keyboards and mice.
I want to read the keys if i get a tab key (from real keyboard on usb) then it records a macro, >>> mypassword [enter] then when he plugged it in, it would simply type his password and login, he pulled the usb stick out and back in his pocket it went until next time he got a new password (tab tab) and i thought hell that's fun to try so i ordered all the parts required but it's 2 weeks later still not arrived so what the hell! i bought a leostick.
so anyway of reading in an actual keyboard's USB data? or is that a no go, wait for my bloody 63 ohm resistors and my 4.6v diodes you say.... well i thought i could do all this measily $2.85 chip but for $29! but i guess no.. but still very fun to play with :) - supports all the normal pins infact i'll take a picture :)
quickly hooked up a light diode and fed it to serial on it.
but this thing is tiny as and very fun..
but if you can't read other usb keyboards with it, waste of money really, i'll wait 2 more yawn weeks for the attiny and use v-hub :(
